Sub Pop 20th Anniversary Festival and Singles Club

Sub Pop Records turns 20 this year and they are planning all sorts of fun things, including some reissues, a limited run of the legendary Sub Pop singles club, and The SP20 Festival in the Seattle area July 11th to 13th featuring music and comedy. A few of the bands playing at the festival include Green River, Kinski, Low, Flight of the Conchords, Mudhoney and Wolf Parade. Sounds amazing!

For a bit of nostalgia, here's a great post about the Sub Pop Singles Club, along with links to hear a lot of the music. Of course, it's not the same if you're listening on your computer instead of your record player and the virtual version misses the point of collecting all the cool vinyl. Were any of you members of the club back in the day? I wasn't, but I did get a few hand-me-down 7"s from the series from a good friend. How many of you will sign up this time around? I'm tempted.
